I couldn't wait until tomorrow to let this thing dry, so I present you with the finished wooden USB drive! I tied on a lanyard too in order to show the use of the hole in the back. The key won't be totally dry until Sunday but it's dry enough to take pictures of!
Oh and yes, it still works.
I think it looks great plugged into the wooden case, and I think it matches it perfectly with it's red oak stripe. I'm very happy with how it turned out and it only took about 8 hours total.
Maybe I'll take orders some time if I can get some cheap drives to tear apart.
I dig it- simple, unique, and cool looking.
Thank you sir!
